About Me

We are an Army family! Miles was diagnosed with Autism at the age of 6 and he is now 15 years old. Marley is Miles' Autism Service Dog and his best friend. This dynamic duo has been together for 5 years and look forward to many more adventures! 

For God has not given us a spirit of fearfulness, but one of power, love and sound judgement.

NEW YORK


For as high as the heavens are above the earth, 
so great is His faithful love toward those who fear Him.
As far as the east is from the west,
so far has He removed our transgressions from us.
As a father has compassion on his children,
so the Lord has compassion on those who fear Him.
Psalm 103:11-13


Come with us for a quick tour 
around Long Island and parts of NYC

Miles & Marley were not together while visiting this state
but Miles wanted to include it as part of his adventures. 


Miles & his cousin had a great time


Penguins


Sharks


and sea turtles



We "discovered" this landmark by accident 


what a wonderful view


WOW….look how long it's been around



Miles & his friend had fun feeding the animals



We decided to explore the park and beach


Miles spotted plenty of wildlife


and really liked the lighthouse



A trip into the city is not complete for us 
without visiting the base



My husband's unit had Family Day activities here
so we took time to explore the area


The turtles were enjoying the nice day


as were the geese


Miles really liked walking out on the rock jetty


guess he should've brought a fishing pole



This was an amazing piece of history


look another lighthouse


It was pretty cool to walk around and see 


history "come alive"


Even with the modern world all around


it was easy to imagine how things used to be


Miles was excited to spot the Statue of Liberty



The elevator ride was quite an experience


and the view was awesome


I must admit it was rather COOL….


being W-A-Y up high


MMMM……Lunch



 YO JOE


LOOK it's a bird….it's a plane...
It's Superman


WATCH OUT here comes Spider-man





LONG ISLAND

Miles LOVED riding the train



Build A Bear
Welcome to the family Biscuit….
MANY friends joined Biscuit
after Miles was introduced to this store


& this is Dash 


Last but certainly not least….
Friends 



MMMM…….GOOD EATS
MMMM……the best pizza we found on the island
(I say WE because everyone seemed to have their favorite place)

for dessert Miles liked Ralph's Famous Italian Ices


We had never tried Carvel & were told this was a must
Miles really liked this ice cream cake
